Hardwood flooring improves any room design

Hardwood flooring is always in style, it has a long lifespan, and it can be refinished when it begins to look worn. It complements and improves any room design, from rustic to modern industrial. Undoubtedly, these are a few of the characteristics that have made wood floors a perennial favorite among homeowners. Ram Interiors is a hardwood flooring retailer in Owasso, Oklahoma, that offers a wide selection of solid wood and engineered wood flooring brands. You can view these brands in our showroom or our mobile showroom can come to your home.

Prefinished solid wood

Oak is the most popular type of hardwood flooring, and it is available in many prefinished solid wood styles. Walnut, maple, hickory, and cherry are additional favorite wood species. Common board textures are smooth, wire-brushed, and hand-scraped. Prefinished solid hardwood flooring is sanded, stained, and sealed in the factory. Be sure to compare finish warranties when browsing since the finish provides protection from daily wear and tear. Boards are installed by nailing them to a wood subfloor. A prefinished solid wood floor has a beveled look.

Unfinished solid wood

The time-honored on-site installation process is particularly desirable for new construction or a large renovation. Like prefinished wood, unfinished boards are nailed to a wood subfloor. Then the floor is sanded and finished, a process that takes one week to complete. After installers complete their work, a second week is needed for acclimation. There are very tight seams between boards, and the floor is well-sealed. Because of its construction, the floor works well in a kitchen. An unfinished solid wood floor has a flush look.

Engineered wood

Engineered wood has a premium-quality plywood base and a top layer of hardwood. Like solid wood flooring, it can be refinished when it begins to look worn. This flooring resists warping, and in fact, can tolerate moisture because of its composition. It can be laid in a basement over a concrete floor. Typically, boards are designed to fit together so the floor floats above the subfloor. In other words, there is no attachment to the subfloor. An engineered wood floor usually lasts 25 to 30 years.
